The National Oral History Association of New Zealand Te Kete Korero-a-Waha o Te Motu (NOHANZ) provides opportunities for community, professional, and academic oral historians to meet each other and keep up with new developments by organising:
- national conferences every two years
- regional seminars
- occasional workshops and presentations
- an annual series of talks.
NOHANZ publishes a regular newsletter, an annual journal Oral history in New Zealand, and occasional publications such as Maori and oral history: a collection, edited by Rachael Selby and Alison Laurie, 2005.
NOHANZ was formed in April 1986 as an outcome of the first national oral history conference held in Wellington.
- to promote the practice and methods of oral history
- to promote standards in oral history interviewing techniques, and in recording and preservation methods
- to act as a resource of information and advise on practical and technical problems involved in making oral history recordings
- to act as a co-ordinator of oral history activities throughout New Zealand
- to produce an annual journal and regular newsletters
- to promote regular oral history meetings, talks, seminars, workshops and demonstrations
- to encourage the establishment of NOHANZ branches throughout New Zealand
- to compile a directory of oral history holdings to improve access to collections held in libraries, archives and museums.
NOHANZ publishes a Code of ethical and technical practice for the use of all those recording oral history interviews.
You can join NOHANZ through the membership page.
